You asked for it........New Photos

Okay, here goes. Everyone is asking to see updated photos of the store so here you are. These were taken about 1:00 this morning. We finally got all the floor fixtures cleaned and in place. I still have to clean the wall shelves and slat board. I still have to put the red shelves on those 3 big red units but we finally have the checkout counter in place and a few other projects completed. There are things sitting around everywhere so please excuse the mess. Again, we will be opening on Saturday the 21st. Every night this week my friends and I will be putting up stock and such. It is getting so close I can't believe it. As I have said many times before, I could not have done this without all of you supporting and encouraging me. Thank you. I hope to be back on Friday with more photos and maybe even some special announcements !
